Bank Holiday round up

Hello - hope everyone is keeping well and enjoyed their bank holiday.

I'm very naughty as I always forget to take my camera out with me, but I gave myself the day off on Sunday and we went to the local country park (again!) with some friends. It was cooler than the previous time but yet again we managed to get sunburnt!

The boys have such a great time, and we took buckets and spades along as there is a man made beach which is always good fun. We did also take the kitchen sink or what felt like it - picnic, alcohol, coffee, change of clothes, towels, sun cream, magazines, toys, jumpers, jackets........sometimes you end up taking just as much for a day out as you would if you were going on holiday for a week!

To round the day off, we went to the local pub for a meal, sat outside and watched the children play. 9 hours later they still had energy!! and weren't quite ready to go home - bizarre!

Over the weekend Mel from Country in the Town and Alex from Pink feather paradise were kind enough to give me an award - thank you so much ladies!

I have to pass it on to 10 other lovely blogs and there is so much choice, so here we go -

Cowboys and Custard


Emily Pickle

Dolly Dollop

Happy Loves Rosie

Mary Poppins

Our New life in the Country

Sew on and sew on

I haven't forgotten to share the photo's of my Laura Ashley goodies - I just haven't got round to taking them yet.........Have a great afternoon

Hi there, I am hosting a book swap over on my blog. It is a permanent feature, which will always be on my blog, it is not a one off, like the rose theme swap I'm hosting. I have listed a load of my books which I am willing to swap, take a look, there may be some you fancy. If you would like to list books which you no longer want, and are willing to swap, just contact me at, or leave a comment on my blog, with your name, the name of your blog and the books you wish to swap, and I will type them up and post them on the swap page, so the more and more people who participate, the wider the range of books there will be to choose from, and remember, it will always be there on my blog.
Take Care
Love Melanie xxx
